Karaoke Anything! is a freeware
program that lets you turn your PC
into the ultimate karaoke machine!
Realtime audio processing allows you to remove the
vocals from almost any song making it perfect for
What song formats can you use?
Karaoke Anything! supports both .mp3 files and
regular CD Audio. You can either open an mp3 or simply insert
an Audio CD into your CD/DVD drive and you're ready to go!
How does it work?
Karaoke Anything! uses a vocal removing technique
that sums the left channel with the inverse of the right.
It then places the results into both channels. We call it
the "karaoke effect".
Many songs are mixed with the vocals being almost equally
loud in both the left and right channels. This is done to
give the effect of the vocalist being "center stage"
when you play it back on your stereo.
When the karaoke effect is applied to this type of recording,
the vocals will disappear or come close to disappearing
as they cancel eachother out. Note: the "karaoke effect"
does not work on mono recordings or in stereo recordings
where the vocals are mixed off center.
About 75% of the songs we tried work pretty well... some
work better than others. But finding a good song is half
the fun ;)
